From time to time I am honored to be asked some variant of the question, "What should I look for in choosing a therapist?" That is actually a pretty deep philosophical question and it is of vital importance as well. Out of respect for your time I will give you the short version, "Look for wisdom". People are usually expecting an answer like "high intelligence" or "vast knowledge" but while those characteristics are very important, the possible limitations of that giftedness set are obvious when you think of, for example, the large percentage of white collar criminals who possess it.

Maybe right now you feel stuck in your life. You know you were made for “more” but what does that look like? You’re over your 9 to 5. Maybe you’re overwhelmed with what to do next. You might have an idea (or too many ideas!) of what’s next and have doubts and fears about your skills. Maybe you have imposter syndrome or are worried about what other people are going to think if you step into the dream career or dream business you REALLY want. Your big dreams of loving what you do (and who you work with) and getting paid well could feel like mission impossible right now. The good news is it’s possible.

Let's work together! In these dark and complicated times, our lives and culture are more complex and stressful than ever before, often taking a toll on our relationships. This is often the motivation bringing clients to therapy because the relationship with ourselves, our loved ones, our community, and the world powerfully defines whether or not we feel safe and satisfied with our life. I'd like to help you deepen your awareness of how you relate to yourself and others and support you in navigating your world. We will work toward increasing your resiliency and making change, if that's what you need. Let me help you.

The therapeutic relationship is a powerful vehicle for transformation. Through developing a trusting relationship where all feelings are welcome, I teach people to trust themselves and thus live more satisfying and authentic lives. My primary theoretical approach is object relations. This implies that relationships imprinted in early life play out and can be reworked in therapy wherein the client can internalize healthier ways of interacting. I am privileged to engage in this deeply personal process with people who are motivated by their suffering to find more effective ways to relate to themselves and others.

I utilize a multidimensional approach when working with clients. At times, a combination of different psychotherapy approaches may be helpful. Treatment domains include self-esteem, anxiety, depression, self-harm and trauma. Creating a therapeutic alliance is an essential component of the therapeutic process. Establishing rapport provides grounds for meaningful engagement within all aspects of the treatment process. This type of therapy relies heavily on developing a strong relationship between client and clinician.

I believe we all possess what we need for psychological wholeness, and in the therapeutic relationship we seek to bring this forth through many healing modalities. Together, we establish a safe space where wounds, old stories, limiting beliefs, traumas, and any way life has tamed you can come to the fore and be tended. The process of reconnecting & rewilding your soul and spirit and stepping into a new state of consciousness can be challenging and present with some pain and discomfort, but I meet you lovingly, with an empowering and heart-centered approach to honoring your sacred timing. I've specialized with adolescents and adults.

Wondering if therapy is can help you? Ask yourself: Are you so sick of waking up with a thousand "WHAT IF. . ." thoughts racing through your mind? Do you just want to crawl out of your skin? Does the idea of being around others, especially people you don’t know well, fill you with dread? Do you get a knot in your stomach at the idea of making a mistake? Are you convinced that something bad is about to happen? Have people or events broken your spirit? Have you lost someone you love? Did your loved one die a terrible death? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you feel that you have no where to turn, no one to talk to about your struggles?

Maybe you believe you "should have known better," shouldn't have trusted someone, or should have trusted yourself. You could be tired of "holding it all together" outside while falling apart or feeling dead inside. Maybe you are simply so stressed you don't know *how* you are feeling. Part of healing is self acceptance for where we find ourselves without giving up on our goals and dreams.
